Colin D. Stolle, Commonwealth's Attorney for the city of Virginia Beach, announced that Brando Colon Jr., 28 years old, was found guilty of Forcible Sodomy- Victim Under Age 13, Aggravated Sexual Battery, and Indecent Liberties following a two-day jury trial.  The jury fixed his punishment at life plus 25 years in prison and a fine of $20,000. This is the maximum prison sentence under the law. Circuit Court Judge James C. Lewis, who presided over the trial, will formally sentence Colon on February 5, 2018. 

The Commonwealth's evidence proved that between May 10, 2015 and April 26, 2016, Brando Colon Jr. sexually molested a child known to him on a regular basis, multiple times per week.  The child disclosed the abuse to a Child Protective Services caseworker and police began an investigation.  The defendant also showed the child a video with sexually explicit content.  ​
